BREAKDOWN

The following available roles in the 2018 season are being considered for Equity contracts. They are the only roles for which actors are sought at this time as we fill many of our roles with our Conservatory Company:     

AIRNESS
by Chelsea Marcantel
First Rehearsal: June 26, Opening: July 14, Closing July 29
Facebender:
Older than the rest; the sweetheart of the group; open and exceptionally gregarious; from San Diego; a New Age hippie, but takes air guitar very seriously; he takes most things very seriously; his performances are full of feeling; he’s pushing against a well of sadness and depth of need; can sometimes feel like a man out of time, like Don Quixote.
________

GALILEO
by Regina Taylor
First Rehearsal: July 17, Opening: August 11, Closing August 18
Galileo
Male, 50s-70s, any ethnicity: A scientist and a man of many appetites, Galileo is equally passionate about the arrangement of the heavens and his next meal.
Mrs. Sarti
Female, 30s-50s, any ethnicity: Galileo's practical housekeeper and mother of his star pupil, Andrea. Mrs. Sarti keeps the bills paid, the windows washed and Galileo's feet on the earth.
